I love love love to garden, but unfortunately its just not possible where I live.  So, the next best thing is to go to a farm!  I love to take my kids to pick-your-own farms and pick whatever they have in season.  This weekend we picked strawberries.  I loved seeing all the little kids get off the tractor ride with red smeared all over their faces!  You knew they were sampling the product! lol 

When I brought the strawberries home, I made homemade strawberry jam (which I just tried and was so so so good), strawberry ice cream, and strawberry rhubarb cobbler.  I bought some rhubarb at the farm and made the cobbler to take to a friend’s house.  There wasn’t a single drop left!  I think it was a hit.  And I had a strawberry spinach salad for dinner.  Needless to say, we are out of strawberries already and I think we’ll have to go back! lol

I posted a few strawberry recipes, so go on out there and pick some strawberries!!
